Leadership

Demonstrated Leadership

In 2017 I was appointed by Governor Brown to the state’s Workforce Investment Board.

…….In my current position as county commissioner I serve on the Cascades West Area Commission on Transportation (CWACT) (as Chair every third year), as Chair of the Northwest Oregon Workforce Investment Consortium Board, as Chair of the Solid Waste Consortium board, and as an active board member of the Economic Development Alliance of Lincoln County, Small Business Development Center, Yaquina Bay Economic Foundation, and as a member of the Lincoln City, Waldport, Toledo and Newport  Chambers of Commerce.

…….Representing Lincoln, Tillamook, Clatsop and Columbia counties I have been elected Chair of District 7 of the Association of Oregon Counties (AOC).  I also was appointed to the AOC Board of Directors, as Co-chair of the AOC Governance Committee, and serve on the Legislative and Budget Committees.

…….Among the many positions of leadership that I hold or have held are Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for Children of Lincoln and Tillamook Counties where I have served as Chair since 2010.  I am a past president of the Yaquina Bay Economic Foundation, Newport Rotary, Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce, and a former board member of the Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce and the North Lincoln Hospital Foundation to name a few.  I have served as Treasurer of the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce for 2006.
